Read all about it

I just got done cleaning a portion of my house, because the thought came to my mind that I'd be mortified if something happened to me and someone had to come into my house and see this disaster. Then they'd wonder what kind of person I really am. Yeah, with four kids+holidays+six (yes SIX) cases of strep throat, it's gotten pretty out of control. Okay, so it's not likely that someone will be forced to come into my home while I am hypothetically out of commission, but still...I'm a thinker. My hubby has noted that I'm an irrational thinker sometimes, which may be true. Regardless, I think a lot.

Like last night as I was lying in bed, Mr. Taylor sound asleep next to me, and I thought to myself, "In this moment I am so happy. This spot in life is so good." And I reveled in it for another 45 minutes while I tried to fall asleep. Sweet slumber finally found me, but so did crazy dreams from days past, which woke me up and got me thinking all over again. It made me realize once again how blessed I am. In life, in love, in business. Has it always felt that way? No. But I'll keep hold of it while I can.

Because of the way my life has fallen together so far, I've learned to embrace change. Change can be a good thing. And in the new year, we often find ourselves thinking about the changes we will be making for ourselves. Right? Of course I have to think about the changes coming in my business this year, and even though some of it is scary, I'm really excited for the new opportunities that will be coming my way.

So I thought I'd tune you in on a BIG CHANGE for Joanna Taylor Photography. Something I've been keeping under wraps for some time, but am super excited to share with you!

Joanna Taylor Photography now has studio space in Salt Lake City. I'll be sharing space with some INCREDIBLE, INSPIRING photographers (and for this I feel blessed). Can I tell you who? First, the amazing, artistic Duston Todd. Next, someone with beautiful perspective, Matthew Ryan. And last, the fun-loving Sheryll Lynne, who has the most amazing style. And I have a top secret project going on with Sheryll that will be announced in February.

I have to make goals for my business, and one is to blog more, to offer more information. I'm going to start a Q&A series, so if you have any questions, please send them my way! I'm going to start showing you more products that I offer. I'm reworking pricing again...as I enter my fourth year of business I've seen some trends in my pricing and have finally started seeing where I need to be priced for the Utah market. I'm going to be focusing a lot more on weddings and newborns (so if you have friends with either of these, be sure to refer them my way! I have a great referral program!). These are all good, exciting things for me, and I'm excited to watch them unfold for a great 2010. Join me, won't you?

And since we're talking about change, something a little different from me:
